No amount of editing will fix focus issues. Do yourself a favor and forget this photo for RP.

In all seriousness, I attribute this to someone trying to create an interesting caption, which is better than no attempt at all. The 2-axle reference is likely a rookie mistake, as I think the author...

I received several undersharpened rejections for non-slide images in the past, and I now have a preset for a moderate amount of sharpening that has never been rejected. Looking closely at the...

Not calling out the photographers, but almost every shot from these two bridges should have been rejected if the railing is clutter.

Carl,

You are placing way too much emphasis on the rule of thirds, and not even considering the reason for the rejection - Composition (Balance). The ROT is a good guideline for placement of the...

That was all I did, with a note to the screener that I was resubmitting with a corrected caption.

I won't appeal. I use them sparingly, and almost always for a technical issue (unlevel usually). I have won greater than 50% of my appeals, but not because I have any special clout. This is a...

Worth a resubmission?

Maybe not, but in the absence of other reliable verticals, more than 1% of the screeners will. The only true reliable vertical is the grain elevator, and it's leaning. Correct that through rotation,...

The center of the photo is level, but your reference points are doing you no favors. First, a signpost is almost never a reliable reference. Why did you pick that when that grain elevator is so...
